Canada has lifted their tariff on American made powerboats!
The Order Amending the United States Surtax Order (Other Goods) was approved and registered earlier this week (registration #SOR/2019-111). This Order amends the United States Surtax Order (Other Goods) to remove boats (tariff items 8903.10.00, 8903.91.00, 8903.92.00 and 8903.99.90) from the list of goods subject to Canada’s countermeasures against certain imports from the U.S., effective April 30, 2019. As such, all boats imported on or after April 30, 2019, are no longer subject to surtaxes on a forward basis.
We have always valued our friendships with our Canadian neighbors.

We are building a new American Tug 435 for a nice couple from Southern California. Friday we installed the deck on the new boat which was a fun surprise for the owners, who visited American Tug on Monday.
Here is the owner holding the Fourth of July Yacht Club burgee. Look for this beauty sea-trialing in the fall.

At boat shows I hear a lot of interesting questions. Under the bright lights and with all the boats shined up, it is a bit of blur trying to find distinctions between manufacturers. The question that many first time shoppers is trying to answer, “is this a good boat?”.
I have suggested that you can quickly ascertain the quality of a boat by looking at the stainless steel and the sound deadening package. A boat builder can scrimp and save money here, or he can choose the best materials and build a real yacht.
American milled 316 fully polished 1.25 inch stainless rail
This is American milled 316 fully polished stainless steel, not imported fake stainless but the real marine grade. We use the heavier 1-1/4 & 1-1/2-inch railing with coped joints and TIG welded so the railing is rock solid and does not rattle or get loose. We are building yachts, not boats.
Sound deadening – generous use of multi-density foam
We use a great deal of thick multi-density foam sound deadening material in building our tugs. No corners cut here, you need to be thorough to build a quality yacht as 80% of the noise can escape through just a 5% opening in the envelope. Air transmitted and structurally transmitted noises are addressed with the American Tug comprehensive approach. Our supplier, Soundown, is the industry leader in acoustic control.
For information on the American Tugs or Waypoint 36 construction please give me a call. Steve Scruggs at 206-930-6139 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
